Fax Policy


The Mookini Library offers limited faxing services to registered students, faculty, and staff of the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo and Hawaiʻi Community College.

Faxes can only be sent, not received.


  • Domestic faxes (U.S. and its protectorates): $0.25 per page
  • International faxes: $1.00 per page
  • UH Hilo students may be able to send faxes at no charge through the student government office in the Campus Center.

Faxing service is provided until one hour before the library closes. Faxes submitted during the hour before closing will be sent the morning of the next day that the library is open.

The library will attempt to send a fax no more than two times. If a fax fails to be sent successfully, the patron will be contacted and asked for another number. The library will try that number one time. If that number also fails, the library will issue a refund of the faxing fee.

The library is not responsible for faxes that are sent to the wrong person because the patron supplied the wrong number on the coversheet.

The library will shred any fax originals and transmission confirmation notices not picked up by the patron within 15 calendar days following the fax transmission.

Call the Circulation Desk at (808) 932-7286 if you have any questions.
